the new politics and spirit that has been take hold in these states. but the obama administration could also embrace this as a moment to rethink the entire drug war. it could ask congress to at least lower marijuana's current classification as a schedule 1 substance. that is the anachronistic and grave category for drugs like heroin, which have no prospect of safe or medical use. or look, the administration could do for pot what it did for children of undocumented workers, make a humanitarian policy decision to lower the priority of enforcing laws against them. the fact is we're living through a real opening here. after decades of the politics of the war on drugs, the focus on fear, on getting tough on people and marginalizing basically nonviolent offenders who pose little or no danger to other citizens, voters are finally moving on. the government should let them lead and get out of the way. >> did i just hear you correctly compare weed smokers to the children of illegal immigrants? >> you did. and from a federal perspective, it's an apt comparison because there are a lot of laws on th

, kron 4 news. >>pam: president obama is asking congress for money on behalf of the states hardest hit by superstorm sandy. a white house official says, the president has requested 60- point- four billion dollars. in a joint statement on the matter, governor andrew cuomo of new york and new jersey governor chris christie say, this money will help their states recover, repair, and rebuild. they also say, their request includes funding to invest in efforts to protect the region from impact of storms like sandy. both governors recently went to washington to lobby lawmakers for federal funds. >> a new jobs report shows. a big drop in the nations unemployment. last month, 146- thousand jobs were added in the u-s. right now, the unemployment rate is 7-point-7 percent. that number does not include people who have stopped looking for work. still - it is the lowest percentage in 4-years. kron 4's justine waldman has a closer look at employment growth here in the bay area. and shows us where the jobs are here >> according to the california employment development department. there are jobs in the
are not satisfied with obama. they are satisfied in part because the auto industry rescue really change things in ohio and they are happy with that. unemployment is much lower in ohio than in other states but they're still discontent with obama and his leadership. but when it comes to really make the jump and vote for romney, that is where he's just not able to do it. i would think of it is as similar to the way kerry talked to people and they said i don't want to warn other like bush and i don't want all this stuff. are you going to vote for kerry? i think there is some similarity to that. i don't know, i mean you know what i hear is what you hear. is seems to be that obama is held as pretty significant, not significant but a solid long-term lead over romney and romney will never fail to close the gap in my sense on the ground is that strikes me that the polls are probably right. but no predictions. no predictions. >> kevin, i want to take you back to -- i want to take you back to the discussion about foreign-policy and the republican party. because, in the 52 campaign, george marshall was un
empire 1600 years ago. nothing new in that sense. the united states, the west as a whole, bears some responsibility here because after the overthrow of gaddafhi, the obama administration, britain, france just turned away from the problem, and so now we have this potential anarchic situation where the terrorists can take root. >> greta: so now what? what do we do? >> at this point trying to find ways to strengthen, i use this term loosely, the government of libya is very important because if we sees somalia this time on the southern coast of the mediterranean, it's very clear that europe will be vulnerable and indeed we will be worldwide, so it seems to me this is something that we should be involved in, but our friends in europe really have a lot at stake here, too. >> ambassador, we want to also ask you tonight about former vice-president dick cheney's latest remarks. now, last night he blasted president obama's foreign policy in the middle east. here's what he said in part. >> i think certainly in my conversations with many of those people, they no longer believe us. they no longer
need is the majority. if john baner and president obama reach a deal i predict that it will pass the united states congress both in the house and the senate. >> and as you heard from some republicans who are upset that speaker baner would even be willing to talk about new revenue. forget about tax rates and republicans a lot of them don't want to talk about revenue. what do you make of that? >> what i hear is they want spending cuts first. we have done this a couple times before where we give into the democrats. we have rate increases and increased revenue. we never can get to the spending cuts. i think if you are going to get to the magic number, 218, for most of the house republicans they want to see the spending cuts first. >> what about that, debbie? we hear about the president's demands when it comes to tax rates. we have not heard much from the president and from the white house and from democrats at all about where they would be willing to cut. >> well, i would respectfully disagree with that. you can start with an agriculture bill that passed the senate in a very bipartis

states have the power to ban gay marriage. and 30 states have laws that do just that. it's been a breathtaking year of change on the issue. president obama, in a switch from 2008, announced his support for gay marriage in a may interview with abc's robin roberts. >> for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same sex couples should be able to get married. >> reporter: on election day last month, voters approved gay marriage at the ballot box for the first time, after dozens of defeats, when maine, maryland and washington state legalized it. but now, it all comes down to the nine justices of the supreme court, and they are generally conservative on social issues, though they're closely divided. for opponents of gay marriage, the very fabric of our society is at stake. >> the fundamental reason why marriage is treated as a public institution rather than a purely private relationship is because it serves the interest of society and the interest of children. >> reporter: edie windsor thinks it's simpler than all that. if you could talk to the supre
